Step by step explanation how to create API Keys for BitMart:

To get subtitles in your language on YouTube, click the Settings button on YouTube.

  1. If you haven't already, go to BitMart’s website and create an account. It's a simple and quick process. Make sure you have your email address and personal details ready.

  2. Once you've created your BitMart account, verify it and proceed to set up the API. To do this, navigate to your user profile and click on API management. It's where the magic happens!

  3. Click "Create API." Select your account, give it a name for reference, this will also be used as a passphrase later, and activate "Spot Trading”. For security reasons, do not give any of the other rights.

  4. Now, go to Cryptohopper and copy the displayed IP addresses. Return to BitMart and paste the copied IP addresses here and click "Add." This security measure ensures trades can only be initiated from Cryptohopper's servers for added protection. Enter both your email code and Google Authenticator code, to activate your API key.

  5. Copy the API Key and API Secret from BitMart and paste them into Cryptohopper. This is the final piece of the puzzle that links your bot to BitMart. As a passphrase, enter the name you’ve given your API key.

  6. Now, it's time to connect! Click on 'Connect to BitMart’ within Cryptohopper.

Unable to see your BitMart exchange balance?

If you are unable to see your BitMart exchange balance, there may be a few issues preventing your trading bot from synchronizing with your exchange. One common cause is "auto-fill" being enabled in your browser. To fix this, try disabling auto-fill, using incognito mode, switching to a different browser, or disabling your password manager. For more information, you can watch our Cryptohopper Academy video on this subject or check our troubleshooting article.

You might encounter an error in Cryptohopper's onboarding process when connecting to BitMart, even if your API Keys are correct. The most common reasons include having no funds in your exchange account, having no funds in your trading account (as some crypto exchanges differentiate between funding and trading accounts), or not being a verified exchange user (KYC). In this case, please click on 'Continue without testing'. You can always check your API Keys later in your Base config.
